A bit about the Artist:
Mike became interested in painting 30 years ago and joined a local art group. He focused on developing his technique as a watercolourist. A major influence on his style of painting is the work of John Yardley: one of the UK’s top contemporary watercolour artists. Mike specialises in painting in an impressionist style while cleverly capturing sunlight and the motion of people in his work. Although Mike has based his style on Yardley’s techniques, because of his architectural training he is able to combine the impressionist feel with accurate depictions of buildings and landscapes which make a lot of his paintings instantly recognisable
